Multi Emulator Super System (MESS) is an emulator for many game consoles and computer systems, based on the MAME core. MESS emulates portable and console gaming systems, computer platforms, and calculators. The project strives for accuracy and portability and therefore is not always the fastest emulator for any one particular system. However, its accuracy makes it useful for homebrew game development.
MESS supports 668 unique systems with 1748 total system variations and is constantly growing. However, not all of the systems in MESS are functional; some are marked as non-working or are in development. MESS was first released in 1998 and has been under constant development since.
This is a collection of various MESS-ready computer and console programs for operation on the majority of working MESS emulations. They are separated by system.

Works like a charm!
Great collection of official MESS ROMs. They run perfectly on MAME 0.151 and up (and also on most older versions).
- Make sure you do not unzip the individual ROM files.
- You also need to create a subfolder inside the roms directory of MESS, carrying the shortname of the system in lower case letters (EG: ../roms/snes).
- Finally, some systems require a ZIP-ed BIOS file (EG: snes.zip), that has to be placed in the root roms folder (../roms). These files can also be found here on archive.org
*4 stars, because it is not the latest version (0.160).
